~ Thank-You ~





What a wonder time I have had over the past couple of days. The response to my new shop has been overwhelming. A big thank-you to everyone who popped in and said hello from 'blogland', I really appreciate your support. Also a big thanks to all the wonderful customers who came and bought! Thank-you so very much. Phew.....now I need to take a breath or two and catch up with all of you. Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

    Glad you had a successful opening. (I never doubted that for a minute!) May you have continued success and find tons of happiness with this new venture.

    I am hoping that my one non-blog friend in Brisbane will soon be stopping in with her sister. (She's a friend of my son's...the houseguest we had last spring. She loved the photos of your store.)
